The New Sector AmeriCorps Residency in Social Enterprise (RISE) program is an 11-month fellowship program for emerging leaders committed to careers in social impact. RISE fellows are selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants and serve as part of cohorts of approximately 25 fellows in the Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago areas. Fellows serve full-time to strengthen nonprofit organizations, while engaging in intensive professional development activities to strengthen their skills for immediate and future impact.
Fellows serve full-time with nonprofit host sites, completing projects that aim to expand these organizations’ capacity to effectively achieve their missions and serve their constituents. Before the start of the fellowship, New Sector works with each host site to develop a project scope that provides a meaningful, impactful, and challenging experience. You can read more about typical host site projects here.
Each Fellow is matched one-on-one with a mentor, who can provide valuable input to support host site project success, personal and professional development, career planning, and more. Our mentors are skilled professionals who volunteer their time to support fellows, and are often management consultants, business professionals, and nonprofit leaders.
